lit solved. That the committee of twenty-one
bo authorized to prepare a carefully condensed
synopsis ?if the evidence, and publish it to the

I stated that it would be impossible to give ex

would be collected, but that a short synopsis
would be widely copied by the preae, while the
affidavits would be preserved until the proper oc
casion occurred for using them in a legal point of

had done more than Gen. OK ANT to bring the war

Mr. TAIXST took a similar view, ?.nd BO did the

and report t?i a subsequent meeting. Other i eso
luttons to tbe same t fleet were offered by Mr. F.
G. Dn FoMTAiers.
Not oonvtnoed by the technical objections of
these geatlemeu of the Bar, I still replied that my
object was nat disoueaion on a matter upon which
all agreed ; that in the preamble I had simply ex
plained, iu a few words, the object of tho meet

lieved by all of ne, I did not consider that I was
denouncing Gen SnemtA.v ; that I thought I was
drawing it rather mild on the General in alluding
to him so gontiy ; that tho preamble waa not ab
solutely necessary ; so, for the reason above
given, I aakod leave to withdraw it. Dr. W. BET
NOLDS objected, but I inaisted, and it was allowed.
Mr. An-nirn'a resolution was then adopted, as

In common with his feUow-oltizens, I am unwil

solutions vindicating HAMPTOH, and indirectly
fastening tbe blame on BXXKOMAN, failed"-no
such were offered. Where Gen. HAK pros ia eo
well known for his noble integrity and unsullied
character, the idea is preposter?os.
As I took part in the initiation of the proceed
ings, I am not willing that the published report
should go forth without correction. I am perhaps
entitled to a word in the premiaos, M I saw my
realdouoe aaoked, pillaged, and deliberately eet on
Ure by SBBBMAM'S sober soldiers, and when I re
monstrated with them for burning a house filled
with women and children, they shouted and Jeered
"Qui facit per alies, fecit per se."
I might evon be pardoned were I to denounce
the barbarous and wanton doatruotlon of my lite

Dr. Sink and Cholera.
To the Editor of the Daily News :
Sin :-Wo regret that Dr. SIMS' last eflort s indi
cate tho noceesity of a little moro tboriaca, and
additional doona of ammonia and cblorodyno. Ho
can scarcely demur at our prescription, inaamnch
sa ho has rc8urroctod tho ?ret article, and recom
mended largo doses of the others. Wo will only
practico on the Doctor with bia own phyaio.
In our review, wo Assorted that tho article
theriaca (and not the "term," aa Dr. S. improper
ly credits ua with saying) was obsoleto, and not
now admitted into any modern Pharmacopoeia of
rcapeotabllity. Our authority for thia aauertion
waa distinctly announced to be the United State*
Diapensatory, whoso opinion Dr. SIM now values no
highly. Upon page 1051, edition 1865, wo read AD
follows : "Thoao exceedingly complex and un
Boientifio preparations formorly known by tho
names of tboriaca and mithridato, which have
beon expolled from modern pharmacy."
Dr. SIM, in his reply to our review, in your iaeuo
of the 17th inat., affirmed dogmatically that tho
"terms theriaca and theriaco are commonly used
hy physioiana in their preaoriptions to signify
molasBoa." I adduced tho test inrony of three of
our most intelligent druggists to disprove thia aa
oortion. It haa pleaaed Dr. SIM to imputo to thom
the "naivete of publishing their own ignorance,"
and of "sotting up their opinions against the
United. States Dispensatory." Let ua now, for tho
sake of the druggists, examine briefly tho opinion
of tho Dispensatory. Upon page 724, edition
1865, the last published, we find that the recog
nized officinal synonym for molasses is "Syrupne
Fuacus." The synonyms "theriaca and treacle"
are noted aa officinal only in the British Pharma
copoeia. But it will bo rememborod that Dr. SIM,
in his article in your iseuo of the 17th, referred ua
to tho United ?States Dispensatory, edition 1858,
page 662, aa his authority for using the term
theriaca as synonymous with molasses. Although
this reforenco to an old edition of the book show
ed that ho was behind the age, wo will meet him
on his own ground. Hero tho term "Sacchari
Faex," aa taken from tho London and Edinburgh
Fbarmacopcoias, Is the recognized officinal syno
nym for molasses. The torm "theriacs." is noted
as tho officinal synonym of tho Dublin Pharmaco
It ia clear, then, but curious, that Dr. 8m
Ignored tho synonyms of the U. S, Dispensatory,
and of the London and Edinburgh Pharmacopoeia
and adopted that of the Dublin. He can but ex
plain why. He should also explain why he now
refers the druggists to the U. S. Diapenaatory.
Dr. SIM can hardly have forgotten in what country
ho lives in-in what country he was oduoated. He
is a licentiate of a Scotch college, and he adopta
Irish pharmacy ; ho enjoys a high appointmont
nnder the United States Government, and he
ignores the scientific synonyms adopted by the
U. S. Dispensatory. Weliumbly submit that one
in Dr. SIM a position should have conformed to
the U. S. Dispensatory, and abandoned his Irish
proclivities. But grauting him the right of a
choice between the U. S. Dispensatory and the
Dublin Pharmaoopoeia, would he not have exhibited
more common sense, while doaling with prescrip
tions (to be filled by our local druggists), if he
had followed the U. 8. Dispensatory, and tbns
put it beyond the possibility of their mistaking
the meaning of his prescriptions ?
These druggists, whom it pleases him to sneer
at, do expect to be govorned by the officinal termo
of the U. S. Dispensatory, but they do not feel
obligated to oompound medioines in the Irish
style. Their good name, we know, is yot safe with
a discriminating public. But we much regret that
Dr. SIM did not secure his "share of tho public
gratitude" by furnishing the name? of the "uianv'?
druggists who propose, with him, to malte molass
es out of an aromatio confection of opium. So
lunch for our doao of theriaca.
iiYDiioiJHi.onATE or AMMONIA-In our preceding
article we expressed incredulity at the idea of
cblorodyno ouring the aixty caaes of cholera at
Paris, and laughed a lit tlo at Dr. SIM'S b?lier that
the hydroohlorato of ammonia was a still more
efficient remedy. Dr. SIM now qnotes Dr. ANDER
SON aa having announced, in 1854, the discovery
that ammonia waa "as muoh of a speciflo for cho
lera as qui ino is a febrifuge in intermittent
We have the temerity to say that Dr. ANDER
SON made a very silly announcement, and we call on
the experience of the profession nineo 1854 to sup
port our opinion. We refer Dr. SIM to the very
excellent Leo ture on Cholera of Deputy Inspector
Gen. MACLEAN, M.D., Professor of Military Modi
olne, published lo the London Lancet tor May,
1866. If he believes that a apeolflo for cholera
has been found, we tell him to read the opinion of
Dr. JOHN MACPHKBBON, as given ia the locturo al
luded to. After fourteen years' experienoo io
Bengal, he waa convinced that ohloroform was
the only addition we moderna had yet acquired to
our (?took of cholera romedies; and he was, with
thia exoeption, almost prepared to adopt the opin
ion of lloucnABDAT, after the cholera of 1650,
"that he had not seen a elogio efficacious remedy,
not one discovery, not a Bingle thought indioatlvo
of edentlfio progress." To believe In oblorodyne
or ammonia as a apeoiflo for obolera, ia to hold to
a "aheet-anohor of hopo" that will drag with
every wind of new doctrine.
But we only allude to thia sub j eot to ask Dr.
SIM if hia pharmacy proclaims Ammonia the
synonym of tbe Hydrochlorate ef Ammonia, bia
"shoot-auohor" in the disease ? Wo do not think
he oto now find refuge even in tho Dublin Phar
macopoeia, And if our impression bo correct,
Dr. SIM should explain why Dr. ANDERSON'S dis
covery is alluded to I The only inference wo can
draw is, that Dr. SIM want? to olaltn priority in
tbia groat discovery, for his experience bogan in
CHLOBODTNB.-To let the public know more
about this article, and to give Dr. SIM the full
benefit of the U. 8. Diapoosatory, wo quote its
language in full from page 966, edition 1865:
"'Cblorodyno.' An empirioal preparation made
under thia name haa boen extensively used in Lod
don, aud haa recently aoquired aomo general
reputation from having been the reputed cause oi

England, and aa having produced very threaten

add (Sou.?!?'?) perchloric acid, tincture of In?
dian hamp and molaosoa; and of theso powerful
medicine?, moroovor, in HUC'H proportiouH au tu
mako one shudder at tho idea of its unregulatod
Ae Dr. SIM i* "dono" with na, wo now finish with
him. Our taek waa undertaken under a conscien
tious soDse of duty to tho publio, and tho publio
must now daoJdfl if Dr. SIM'S phyaio is to go down.
We consider it moro raodost to adopt a "norn de
}>lume" than to aproad our namo in print. Wo
havo no dosire, however, for ita concealment tu
Dr. SIM or the curious generally. Mr. Editor, you
aro ut liberty to divulgo it. Wo havo lived long
enough in thin community to fear no appeal to
that coii??Yneo and generosity which have over
been our support. In the evont of tbo isi-uo of

Ia Civil Law Restored I
To the Editor of the Daily iVeioa.
General Ordera No. 26, of May 1, 1866, from tho
War Department, provides that "hereafter, when
ever offences committod by civilians aro to bo
tried where oivll tribunals aro in existence which
can try them, their cases are not authorized to be,
and will not bo, brought before military courts
martial or commission, but will be committed to
tho proper civil authorities." * *
Now tho question for consideration is, whether
or not, in all ouVncoa or injuries against freed ne
groes, either oivil or criminal, there are in this
Stato in oxistenco oivil tribnnala which can try
them; and upon examination, of the law it will be
fonud that there aro.
The Statuloa of South Carolina provide that
for any debt or demand of a free person of color
ho may bring his civil suit against a white mau
in tho Courts of Law in this State, aud have as
complote justice dono him as any white citizen
could. So much for bis oivil rights. For the
morder of a freo negro [or oven a B1?.ve], by a
whito mau, the punishment waa and ia the same,
and tried before tho same civil tribunal as that
for the murder of a whito man.
The Act of the Legislature of 1837, 6 Stat, 674,
provides thal "?'hoover shall bo convicted of foroi
bly or fraudulently abducting, or assisting to do so,
any free person of color living within thia State,
.ko., shall be fiuod not less than one thousand dol
lars, and be imprisonod not less than twelve
months." For committing an assault a d battery
on a free person of color the same oivil tribunals
nan and will try a white man, and the punishment
is similar to that of having committed tho ?ame
offonce on a white man, to wit : fine and impriann
tnont. In the osao of the State vs. Wn LI AU HILL,
2d SPEKB, 150-onr own 8tate Beports-tbo de
fendant was convicted and imprisoued for c m
mitting an assault and batteiy on a freo negro,
and the Court said in that case : "A false impris
onment, as well as an assault and batt? ry of a
free negro, is au. indictable offen-e at common
law, and tnat free negroes have all tbe rights of
property and protection whioh white persona pon
seas, with rho exception that they cannot with
force repel force;" and that it has been repeatedly
so ruled as the law of South CarolinaSnd the civil
tribunals of our State. Our Courts of Common
Pleas and General Sessions will take cognizance
thereof. Tho samo waa fully reo ?guio, d -iu the?
case of tho State vs. OBAHUCS HABIBN, 2 1 SPKXU,
162; and so the civil tribunals will take cognizaueo
of all oases, oither oivil or criminal, against a
white man, where a free negro ia concerned.
Such being tho laws of South Carolina, there
fore, any offence? committed by civilians aro to be
tried by tho civil tribunals of the Stute, because
there aro civil tribunals in existouco in tho State
which, in tho languago of the order, can try them.
Courts Martial or M ilitary Cominirsions are not
authorized, and cannot, therefore, try such cases
under this order."' T.

TRIAL OF JF.I'VKBSON DAVIS.-It is ? matter of

bo placed upon the r- cordaof our national history
mid form part <>f the cre.it traditions of civil coh
flicts, and lieromo uno of the great precedents ot
law, should hw? sn?'h an unworthy corunience
iiient. Judg<< Under ' ood, otiu nf that spurious
judiciarv crested in the ennrao ofillegitiiuato fac
ti-ni. made a mump speeoh to the Grand Jury
which waa disgraceful cvon aa a spicimon of tliti
oiHtory of tho stump; and upon tins iiintigation,
and we know not what other base arta, the indict
ment was procured.
All o hor parties to tho great civic drama are
lar ani'v?) thia lovel of baseness. The accused,
the Chief-Just co, tho proaecnti r. counsel, and
tho lawyers for the defence, and tbo Prtsidont
who is io execute or modity the semonco of tho
oin? t, all those arc men capable of playing the
reat part assigned to them. The more's the pity
tho prolog tu- was given to a mountebank to re
